Whats wrong?


Everything with the people at my age. Everything we think we understand. Everything we believe we know. Everything that seems to make sense.

We are doing it wrong. Absolutely wrong. We are not keeping faith. We are not keeping faith in love. We are not believing that someone might just want to STAY. We are not understanding the serious sentiments. We are not talking about “commitment”. We are not making future plans. We are not helping each other grow. We are not supporting. We are not being insecure and possessive. We don’t express jealousy. We are just not doing those cute little things.

You know why? Back to square one, we are not keeping faith. We are not falling in love enough. We are not trusting anybody. We just aren’t.

We doubt our own feelings. We doubt each other. We are just over-doing these casual relationships and flings. We are not second guessing the sense of belongingness. We are not feeling the meaning of togetherness. This is wrong. This is really sad. And its just totally wrong.

Maybe its time. Its time to change a little bit. Time to change how we feel about someone. Genuinely. And when we do, we need to change the habit of keeping it to ourselves. We need to let it out. Its simple and its easy. Its time we build relationships and bonds and that too not just over Facebook. Its time we meet up without nagging or delays. Its time when we do not play hard to get. Its time to understand the unsaid and mean the unspoken. Its time to make assumptions from the gestures of the beloved. Because they love you and you just have to believe that. Yes there are heartbreaks and breakups and fights but all of it when kept on one side should still weigh less than the power of emotions. True to the core, emotions.

Believe. Keep faith.
